The Ecobee Switch+ is designed as an immediate substitute to standard home switches. The product reinforces your light control with a mic, a speaker, and Amazon Alexa, to help you bark orders at an electronic assistant without an Amazon Echo in sight. Since it’s a light switch, it also important to set up at every room in your home, to help you speak with Alexa in the family room, the bedroom, and the cooking area, in the restroom, the outdoor patio, and even the cellar, swapping the light switches with the Alexa-powered product.
The Ecobee Switch+ is a real light switch, so you can utilize it to switch whatever lighting it is wired to on and off with a press of a button. Obviously, it features built-in Wi-Fi, to help you use the app to turn the same lighting on and off, provided that it is linked to your network and you recognize the name of the specific switch you are handling. Setting up must be same as a typical switch, besides the fact that you’ll need to link it to your Wi-Fi network and give it a name on the app. Overall, they estimate setting up for each switch to be around 45 minutes.
